2:7 - Robert Lorenz Residence
802 E Harrison
& Ella (Shoop) Lorenz had this new home built during the summer and
fall of 1896. A long-time Kirksville
grocer, Robert came to the US from his native Germany at age 17 and arrived
in Kirksville 3 years later (1870).
The couple along with their children, and possibly a son-in-law, are
standing among the ice-damaged trees on their front lawn after the January
23, 1897 ice storm.
